Just So Random

You know how we casually toss off the phrase, "stuff happens?" Today's post is all about small things and random encounters as I skip across the Web.

The first "small things" belong to my neighbor's newborn baby boy. Even though it took approximately 3 weeks off and on to knit the earflap hat with matching socks, I'm sure he'll graduate in no time to bigger and better things - in probably less than 3 weeks time!

Here's another way to get small: Nikon's small world and the obvious companion piece, The Micropolitan Museum. There are so many interesting - and usually unseen - parts of the world around us. All we need is a little help in opening our eyes to them.

A word, if you please. Where do you go for your fix? You might find a new source or two in "A Logophiles Delight!"

Quilters already know about fitting small squares inside larger squares. See how commonly understood principles of logic and design meet harmoniously in "Layers of Meaning."

OOH! I love word references. I own several books on words but can always use a few sites for the occasional quick fix. Thanks.

The squares post was very interesting, too. I live with an engineer and find the applications of things like this and fractals facinating.

Very cute baby goodies. Definitely worth the short use. Plus, I bet they'll get passed on since they're much too cute and practical to not.

I love that logophiles site! Too cool! It looks like it could be quite a time suck. Maybe even worse then Ravelry. ;-)

And the baby set? Too cute!

Ahhhh, It's adorable and might I add one of my shades of blue. Lucky baby to get these for sure. I like the earflaps.

Adorable hat and socks! I'm not sure the bear wants to give them up.
